CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — A second man is accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year old girl at a fraternity party at the College of Charleston.

James Fashawn West, III, 22 is charged with engaging a child for sexual performance. He bonded out of the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center on a $15,000 bond.

Last week, College of Charleston student Timothy Seppi, 21, was arrested on several exploitation charges. Police say they found an image of a minor performing a sexual act on the 21-year-old’s phone. Investigators say he took photos of a 17-year-old girl performing a sex act on another man during a party on Ashley Avenue. He was released on bond.
